More via Gov.UK:
Man of Steel actor Henry Cavill, who plays Superman on the silver screen, presented the award for Best Reservist to Royal Marines Reservist Major Henry Dowlen, Major Dowlen was recognised for his work in Sierra Leone as part of efforts to stop the spread of Ebola. Henry Cavill, whose brother serves in the Royal Marines, said:
It means a lot to have been able to present this award. Any opportunity I have to show respect to members of the Armed Forces who have done wonderful things is an opportunity I would jump at – especially an opportunity to to give an award to a member of the Royal Marines Reserves, as my brother is a Royal Marine.
The stories I have heard today have been fantastic and inspiring tales, I feel proud of all of them.
Major Dowlen added:
It was humbling to have been recognised in this way. It was also a pleasure to receive my award from Henry Cavill. His brother and I used to work together so it was nice to finally meet him.
